Battlemind was a Force power wherein one's morale and fighting spirit was augmented through sheer focus, giving a user the drive to fight through even the hardest of conflicts. One could overcome the disabilities of old age and even fading stamina. Users of Battlemind could find themselves fighting with a great deal more fiery and controlled passion, thus it was not common among the more orthodox fighting styles of the Jedi.

Those who couldn't effectively resist the pull of the dark side would find this ability pushing them closer to it. Through pure fighting spirit, the Battlemind ability could push the users physical limits.


The most notable practitioner of Battlemind was Mace Windu, who relied on its use, and additional dark side powers, to help in the creation of the Vaapad fighting style.
